Kite Realty reports higher revenue, bigger loss

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Kite Realty Group Trust Inc. reported higher revenue and a bigger loss during its fiscal third quarter, a busy period during which the company raised $60 million from a share offering, bought one Florida shopping center and sold another.

The Indianapolis-based real estate investment trust said Thursday evening that it lost $3.04 million, or 5 cents per share, on revenue of $25.4 million in the quarter ended Sept. 30. That compares to a loss of $643,584, or 1 cent per share, on revenue of $23.5 million during the third quarter in 2011.

The company blamed the higher loss on an increase in depreciation expense of $3 million, partially offset by a $2.1 million increase in income from property operations.

Kite reported third-quarter funds from operations, or FFO, of $7.14 million, or 11 cents per share, compared with $7.05 million, also 11 cents per share, in the same quarter a year earlier. Funds from operations is a common measure of REIT performance.

The FFO figure matched the average of analyst estimates, but the revenue total came up about $1 million short.

The company, which owns interests in 58 retail properties totaling 8.7 million square feet, said the properties were 93.5-percent leased as of Sept. 30, compared with 93 percent at the end of the third quarter in 2011.

During the quarter, Kite raised $60 million by selling more than 12 million shares at a price of $5.20 apiece, using the proceeds to pay down a revolving credit line. The company also closed on more than $60 million in loans for development projects in Seattle and Raleigh, N.C.

The company paid $15.2 million for a Publix-anchored shopping center in Vero Beach, Fla., and sold a center in Coral Springs, Fla., for $8.7 million.

Net loss attributable to common shareholders was $5.8 million for the first nine months of 2012, compared with a net loss in the prior year of $3.9 million.

Kite’s shares were down about 1 percent in early trading Friday, at $5.42.

  1. Yes sir keep cashing those 300K a year checks direct to IMS, while millions disappear from the teams like Rahal's. Guess there wasn't enough ka- ching going around to keep Sarah Fisher in business without their "merger". LOL._____.Meanwhile back in Realville the series with the "best racing in the world" drew what appeared to be about 5000 live spectators ( and probably 1500 of those Target "freebies", and was beaten in the ratings by a series that reportedly consists of "parades" and aired while most people are still sleeping. That will generate those big ka-chings for sure. :-). But, hey, as long as the Speedway gets the cash who gives a damn about the teams?

  3. If I could actually get the prices...I would do this on my own. We need laws that force provides to publish the costs they will charge. Everyone else gives you the price in advance...except hospitals.

  4. I was under the impression that fencing is not allowed on a front yard and that on a corner, both sides are considered "front" yards, therefore can't be fenced without a variance. Also impedes the visibility for drivers at the intersection. Am I understanding this correctly? Might be why a fence was not included in the plans and a request for a variance will have to be made?.

  5. I was a big fan of Cowards and Carrots, which I got a chance to see at the show. It's currently on Kickstarter, but the designer also put out What's He Building in There last year, which got a fair amount of buzz.
